airline Air France And the subsidiary HOP, Part of the group Air France – KLM A total of 7580 jobs are reported, about 17.5% of the total number of people 43,420: 41,000 in Bayer France and 2420 in the HOP. The cuts will be made over the next three years, with half leaving due to their retirement age and / or voluntary departure.

Air France notes that over the past three months, the company’s activity and revenues have plummeted by 95% and the peak of the crisis has lost around € 15m a day. “The recovery seems to be very slow due to the uncertainty surrounding the global health situation, the removal of restrictions and demand. We expect the activity to return to pre-crisis levels only in 2024. ”

Air France has been supported by the French government through € 7 billion in loans, which will enable the group to cope with the short-term crisis and accompany large commitments. “Air France must accelerate the upheaval to regain its competitiveness and strengthen its position,” the French airline said.

Air France and HOP are working with unions to implement voluntary departure, early retirement and professional and geographical mobility. The full program will be presented at the end of July, along with the plan for the Air France Group – KLM.
